‘Tis the season for sequins and fur, right? And who says you can’t wear these being pregnant?! In fact, I feel like it’s even more of a reason to dress up and celebrate! I wore this look last week for a friend’s Christmas party. I am absolutely in love with this dress from ASOS (my go-to maternity resource for trendy dresses and tops). It’s perfect for the holidays, New Year’s and any other excuse you have to celebrate this winter season! And, bonus, it’s on sale right now.

For the past few months I have been playing interior designer, working on my daughter’s nursery. It’s been an extremely fun project and I am finally down to selecting the last pieces of art and finishing touches. If you remember this post, I am trying to create a comfortable and cheerful room using modern and whimsical furnishings that will hopefully grow up with our daughter. As I started making selections, I noticed several themes emerging:
Flora & Fauna :: Our daughter’s room is turning into a modern zoo. I didn’t plan on an animal theme, but I just keep finding the cutest modern animal objects, like this Kate Spade New York elephant bank, leather lion and sheep bookends, and my absolute favorite item, the wicker, animal hamper. To help add femininity to the room, I am looking for floral art to adorn the walls. I love this print from Lulie Wallace at Anthropologie.
Modern Clean Lines :: No surprise here, I am drawn to modern clean lines for the nursery furniture. For a great looking, modern crib, you can’t beat the price at Ikea and the Nurseryworks Sleepytime Rocker and Perch Stool are perfect for our little feeding / reading corner.
Sculptural Objects :: To balance with the modern, clean lines of the larger furnishings, I wanted to incorporate some whimsical shapes and sculptures into the room. I fell in love with this eccentric floor lamp and this brass sphere pendant.
Black & White with Light Wood :: When it comes to color, I am setting the base with classic black and white. I selected all white furniture and am looking to smaller accessories, like this side table, table lamp, mirror, pillow, throw, hooks and drawer knobs to add some stark contrast. I am also adding pops of natural, light wood through the changing pad tray, the rocker legs, the wicker hamper, and various toys and accessories.
Mixed Patterns :: I am not committing to a single pattern. Instead I am incorporating various prints in shades of chartreuse, peach and turquoise. This rug from Anthropologie makes the room in my opinion. I also love this polka-dot cashmere blanket from J.Crew Baby and this bohemian pillow from Lulu & Georgia.
Oh and yes, we decided on a name – Beckett Elizabeth! I can’t wait to meet her in less than two months!

I love a good deal. Honestly, finding something I want / need at a price well-below its traditional value gives me a slight high. I always google for coupon codes. I price compare across multiple sites. I like to “beat the system”. And I admit I’ve woken up before sunrise on more than one occasion to hit up Black Friday sales. But, this year, I am sticking to mostly online shopping. And why not! Many of my favorite retailers are offering the same great deals online.

A couple weeks ago, my best girlfriends threw me the most amazing baby shower. I am working on gathering pictures and will share the details later, but today I thought I’d share what I wore. Baby shower dress shopping was more difficult than I imagined. But I am so glad I settled on this midi embellished dress from ASOS, which has become one of my go-to retailers for maternity fashion.
Maternity Style, Showered (30 weeks) :: Dress: ASOS (also in navy, perfect if you’re having boy!). Bracelet: J.Crew (similar budget version, available in other metals). Wedges: Pour la Victoire via Last Call.
